Backwards Compatibility 2:
All software can be seen in terms of processors of
data operating on data. Therefore:
All Unix-style command line software can be offered as
a Tn component with a simple generic wrapper:
There exists vast range of free software from compilers to
sound filters, all of which can be immediately made available
With custom wrappers, .NET and CORBA objects can
be fully & natively exposed
A generic wrapper could expose all .NET and CORBA objects,
but it wouldn’t be very efficient
Word, Excel and ODBC/ADO (MySQL) would be very useful
